Nine’s upcoming renovation series homeMADE is reported as changing its format from a half-hour strip show to 2 x 60 minute episodes per week. That’s 30 minutes less than originally planned.
And it also leaves the 7pm timeslot wide open at Nine. The question now is will we be stuck with Two and a Half Men or could Nine move Millionaire Hot Seat into the slot?
Make no mistake, the 7pm slot on commercial TV is about to get a makeover itself. After all TEN has Masterchef Australia due in May. Home and Away is pulling about 1.1m and ABC News continues to benefit from slim alternative offerings.
As previously reported, the US version of The Chopping Block by homeMADE creators Julian Cress and David Barbour was axed after only three weeks.
The new renovation series was also greenlit before the financial global meltdown hit.
